6:32 pm
youngsters adapt to changes in the country we discuss this with education and science minister andre. and they did also go minister of education it's great to have you with us we used to be very proud of the soviet educational system we inherited there with say that our sixth great school student studies things that american students on study until four years into the university of sydney got about sums it out of what is going to change not only in the system but more importantly in the mentality. first of all we indeed used to have a good educational system of law it was very adapted to the country we lived in at
6:33 pm
the time and it had its flaws and one such issue was that when the country changed completely here those who had previously received a good education fails to adopt the lesson learned here is that as we reform the educational system to teaching students to adapt to change our world and its value succeeded must be at the heart of what you do why are we doing it today our country changed back in the ninety's. because the money because at any given time people pay either more or less attention to education the educational system underwent considerable reforms during the soviet era as well it is worth noting go over that in the 1980's when the need for reforms was already there because experience dramatically or profound change the definition was put on the back burner sort of speech in the one nine hundred ninety s. when the need for change was acute the state lacks the necessary funds or resources to help lamented not why by introducing a new law and education and giving educational institutions more freedom it is the
6:34 pm
state itself withdrew from education both in terms of support and in terms of setting requirements and goals medications has just pulled up with the economic model as a story for educational reforms are being criticised by many. cloying state officials teachers students parents experts and their main point being that they were forms half ailed what's your response to the. thing is is that we'll only get a proper impression of the reforms impact if they fail or not in about ten years time for me my priority is different it's important that officials teachers and students parents are saying that today's educational system is not good enough it means it needs to be changed as for how exactly it needs to be changed here opinions vary with and we encourage and welcome all stakeholders participation in discussions we are completely open and all issues are being discussed in detail and gradually step by step we are making progress you remember how much discussion
6:35 pm
there was around the united states exams today public old suggest that the majority of teachers are in favor of us are the majority of students together with their parents who already took it those opposing it have typically never had anything to do with the exam at all they've just read the press and have an impression something is wrong. he was like a little more specifically they were afraid of heights that the only compulsory subjects on the curriculum in oppression is safety and security physical education mathematics and russia in the global world although no one really understands what that is about it's assumed to be a subject with an ideological slant when she agreed that at her first glance it looks like a very odd list of subjects quite logically one wants to ask why not a russian language or not history even our prime minister said in his speech section the physical training maybe it's worthwhile to revise this list a matter of such as what criteria did you use in defining them. because it's. the i'd like to say is that as of today this is nowhere near an accepted standard it is
6:36 pm
a suggestion made by one expert group we simply offered it up for public discussion just this ingestion proposes at least ten compulsory subjects on the curriculum which should also be noted that there are subjects which are not so much compulsory standardized across various curriculum systems what will the student can choose arts or they can choose to work in the the street or to follow a career in the performing arts as it would have gardasil the student should be fit and healthy and therefore no matter what subjects they choose and considerable importance for themselves physical education and sports are of fundamental employed similarly in a complicated and dangerous world we live in people must be able to deal with emergency situation such as major first aid or know what to do with god forbid a terrorist attack occurs on it is the subject probably does not have an extensive program it is essential for everyone with every educational curriculum of course there's no doubt literature mathematics natural sciences should be compulsory
6:37 pm
depending on how a student learns their futures they have an opportunity to select from a subject list two different modules so many see problems are in a school based education but with a higher education they say that our higher educational institutions have fallen way behind those in the developed world do you agree with. that's. the problem i believe it's a global problem to me is that globally education changes more slowly than the incredibly fast developments we see in economics and the social sphere often problems of human innovation changes a rapid manyfold eli and others grow disenchanted that's why as you social incidents are on the rise it may explain growth in vogue addiction because some try to deny the facts of rapid change to avoid a life bringing new challenges demands and solutions we must prepare our children for that as perhaps we should start with preschool institutions and primary schools our higher education may not meet the challenges of the present but we are trying to find a solution by supporting the best institutes in the country by bringing up leaders
6:38 pm
who will reform the whole education system the way with at this level we give our students more freedom to choose what to study with us but along with we've got to create opportunities for them once they've made their choice if a student chooses natural sciences we have a responsibility to provide top quality education in this subject and we would like it to be the best in the world with today in some universities we provide this level of education but in others not yet but then changes and reforms are needed throughout the system. rather than so many wealthy parents send their children to study growers the same thing with citizens from the rest of them incessantly as they receive a grant they leave the country to study abroad but i think that is. not everyone in a situation is changing the situation is different from how it was ten or fifteen years ago moreover many young people are returning to russia because today there
6:39 pm
are job opportunities and interesting places to live for the past several years the average age of people working in science has been slowly growing tired of the a number of people involved in scientific research who are younger than forty is rising this is what we dreamt of just a few years ago young scientists who received. the additional education and experience of rules are starting to kind of. we have to create conditions where they're working to make education science and economics more attractive for our young people so that they will stay in the country. how can that be done i remember last year young scientists say to the pressure received the nobel peace prize in physics but they all live abroad how can we stop the brain drain where we are making a great effort we're building laboratories raising salaries for young scientists we're inviting renowned scientists from around the world to create you know barger reason the country this process will take a long time we've lost a lot and now we're restoring it step by step from that is we can't expect good results overnight with the grid we are seeing positive changes at every stage but
6:40 pm
there are negatives too and we're working on them we live in a world where we can turn to to speak about both good and i gave you several examples of our work you don't fortunately very few people know about his life but we should to claim our progress as much as we address probably sleep through the issues in dallas personally drives except that from now on pressure will recognize that foreign university promises about russian credentials are not recognized brought to really fair. it's unfair but a retaliation in this respect is not the right option we're interested in bringing the best scientists and shooters to russia to teach our students in russian universities rather than encouraging our young people to study abroad we're negotiating qualification recognition with leading american and european universities to see asians that will in holding these negotiations we hope to create a mutually institutionalized standing of the state level of real into institutional cooperation of the third. with the best foreign universities recognize degrees
6:41 pm
awarded by our best universities and i think that this is a more effective and positive way for us to be able to provide the best film scientists from around the world to russia and abroad best young scientists to work in the leading world setters without any problems with us. according to one rating they are talking of our city and the scope of state universities seventy force in the world to what extent is it objective or accurate the reason. any rating is subjective and any rating is open to manipulation you can use our university heads are offended by the placing but i tell them not to pay much attention to your priorities are different from the police there are many comparative criteria we should choose those most important for us and that's base our reforms on what already is we set ourselves so she can minimum of them for example every rating considers a citation rejects of scientists working in the university and that's in my opinion this is significant where scientists are not always enthusiastic by publishing in
6:42 pm
english their new version when i explain to the simple facts of the country's image when your best scientific work is read and cited around the world. all professors are paid by the state and those peer responsibility to enhance interesting through academic endeavor there is also an index of graduate success we always lose out in this respect because we simply do not know to what extent our graduates are successful yes if we are to prepare highly sought after professionals we should at least know about their career it's a key university responsibility well yeah in the us to have specifically designed system for that then yes it was right it also promotes the university and so would my opinion but if we paid more attention to those indexes we would have a higher position in the ratings. so thank you very much for this interview. thank you. a question in mission. inside the campaign you have. to have anywhere from dozens up to
